When Sara Crewe, a young girl used to being treated like a princess at home, joins an English boarding school, she finds it difficult to adjust to her new surroundings. Sara, however, can imagine wonderful things and is a master storyteller. Her talents win her friends at school. But disaster strikes and her life is turned upside down. She is transformed from being a princess to a pauper and now must make her living by running errands for the cook. How does Princess Sara cope with the change in her life? Will she be strong enough to overcome her situation?

A Little Princess is the heart-warming story of a young girl’s belief in herself and her marvellous gift of imagination with which she can soar past anything.
